I love to make fun of Microsoft, but not about everything. Elaborating on my one-forty on the Microsoft/Danger data debacle — if you are a technologist, you might want to actually have had to do systems administration and walk a few hundred operating system installs in their shoes before you start pointing fingers.
If you are a systems administrator? You better check your own backups right now, then you can point.
And if you are a pundit? It doesn’t have a damn thing to do with “the cloud” — It is partially about services that don’t let you get your data out. But that could be WordPerfect as much as it could be “the cloud”
